2023 Evaluation Capacity Development (ECD) Seminar

20 scholarships funded by the Belgian Development Cooperation’s Special Evaluation Office (SEO)

Selection process

The seminar sets out to strengthen NES/VOPE to be able to play a stimulating role in strengthening the national M&E system. Eight to ten country teams, each composed of a maximum of three M&E experts ideally from different sectors (government, civil society, academia, etc.), will be selected and granted a scholarship. Evaluation societies should thus encourage several of their members to apply.
